Very nice hotel located about 15 minutes to the Dome. My single was very pretty, good wi-fi. The brothers at the desk speak a fluent english and they know everything about Florence. I bought breakfast ( good ! ) for just 5 euros. Nice music in the common area. It's nice to find a clean place , very nice !

Leonardo was very helpful upon our arrival into Florence. He showed us the map and highlighted the main sights to see. The Location was good, about 15 mins walk to main city center. Florence is quite small so easy to get around. The room was air conditioned and clean and we had no issues at all. Would stay here again.

It was a great hotel in the middle of Florence. Thought it was a little far away from everything, Florence is a town where walking is a must but there was a bus that took you to the train station which made it easy for the day we arrived and left. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and best of all was the Air conditioning in the room! Europe has been going through a heatwave and the air conditioning in the room was the best luxury a girl could ask for. Would definitely come back here.

We had a GREAT stay at this hotel! The facilities were great, they had AC which was just what we needed, a big room, and the staff was more than helpful. The only thing that wasn't great about this hotel was the location, it was just outside of the main part of the city, but still pretty close. If it hadn't been summer the location wouldn't have been a problem but because it was so hot we didn't want to walk, but the bus stop is very close too.

Nice small hotel, very well located and clean. My single was nicely decorated , good wi-fi and breakfast was pretty good for 5 euros ( considering bars in town charges you 1.50 euros to stand up while you have your cappucino ). The staff is very friendly and their tips were excellent. thank you !!

Upon arrival the front desk have us a map, made suggestions on sites to see, restaurants to go to, and the streets and bar for going out. He helped me plan a day trip to cinque Terre and was SO ACCOMMODATING. The hotel was clean with 24 hour security. Good location, about 1km from a bunch of the sites and 2 from the train station.

This hotel is perfect I think for a short stay to check the sights of Florence. It's a simple place, but if you're looking for convenience and welcoming staff it ticks the boxes. Location - very centrally located and an easy walk to all the main sites. Staff - very friendly and accommodating, and it was this that pushed it up a few more levels in my rating.

Very clean and huge room with fridge, table and chairs. Staff very friendly and more than willingly to help and recommend sites and restaurants! It was a bit of a walk to the main center but not super long. Our bathroom was across the hall so we had to go out of room to use it but it was minor. Would highly recommend!

thanks for the good review! we are located 5 mins walk away from the Galleria dell'Accademia where the Michelangelo's David is and 10 mins walk away from the Florence's Duomo. regarding your bedroom,as per reservation, you choose a double with shared bath that is why you had to go out to use the toilette,you could have booked a room with private toilette and shower but you decided not to. this just because I wanted to be clear, we always respect customers booking and we care about it!

The wifi wasn't working during our stay which was somewhat frustrating. Other than that the place was fantastic. Staff really friendly and you're only a ten minute walk from the centre.
